. alex, what's been the overall reaction to the visit? all right. >> reporter: good morning, john, good morning, diana. there have been two very distinct reactions. on the israeli side for starters i don't think it could have gone any better. many israelis viewed obama with some suspicion, but he's really won them over with his actions in recent days and particularly his speech here in jerusalem yesterday. here you can see the front page of one of the main israeli daily newspapers that says -- [ speaking a foreign language ] -- "you are not alone," one of the lines from his speech yesterday, which he won widespread praise for, and i think it's safe to say that in the coming days, you'll see a public opinion spike among israelis in the coming days and weeks. now, on the palestinian side, it was the polar opposite, deep frustration, deep disappointment, anger over the fact that president obama didn't call for a halt to israeli settlements in the west bank, which palestinians see as the main obstacle of peace. they don't feel that he did anything to advance the cause of palestinian stateho
you're right. the problem is, when obama talked about the fundamental transformation of the nation this is what he meant. he went after the four main pillars of the u.s. economy, industrial base, financial sector, energy sector, and health care. once you remake those parts of the economy into a socialist model, it's very tough to unravel. very tough to unwrap the tentacles of redistribution is him. then i start to do it with the medical device repeal the we just saw yesterday. they might start to pick at a little bit. and telling you, this is so big and so comprehensive and so deeply ingrained in our economy, it's going to be difficult to one vote -- on wind. we need strong leader second elected. stuart: bottom line, it's very difficult to take back what you have given the lesson from england, know a lot about this, politicize medical coverage, politicize the medical system so that if someone is not given the treatment that think they're going to get the appeal directly to the politicians who then have to respond on the treatment of this individual. i remember tony blair in questio

involvement. >> that's the thing. that's right. i just want to go with this. i'm in a very great mood tonight. president obama speaking to republicans at dinner at that posh jefferson hotel and also speaking to the republican caucus said basically that he would go to work on some entitlement reform. senator shaheen i'll direct this to you. regarding cost of living adjustments, regarding means testing, regarding eligibility. the president said he would put that on the table. i'll give him credit for that. why don't we take it up on that. senate democrats are opposed to any entitlement reform from what i gather. you all are way to the left of president obama and i believe the senate democratic caucus is a huge barrier to the kind of entitlement reform that mr. corker and frankly president obama are talking about. >> senator corker and i certainly agree on the fact that one of the best things we can do is come up with a long term plan to deal with this country's debt and deficit, but one that also allows us to grow the economy in the meantime and obviously i've said all along we got to look at a
in the jerusalem post entitled how would obama's speech. reads in part. obama delivered a potent plea to the israeli people to continue to work for peace, saying that not only was it the right just the thing to do it was the smart thing to do but one must question whether his chosen audience was indeed the one that needed convincing. >> josh, very moving words by the president in israeli. >> yeah, it was. to get a standing ovation in israel from young jews calling for a palestinian state is an achievement. >> mike, what did you think? >> strong day for the president. strong two days for the president in israel. not much in terms of specific policy, but his presentation to various audiences and the things that he said to the various audiences and to the world were very powerful messages. >> sam, this is a president that threw out much of his first term. wi was not trusted by a large number of israel people. look at ti looking at the speeches and events he did yesterday, i suspect that is not the case for much of his second term. he is engaged in the way he hasn't been engaged in israel

into the law. but the vote was nonbinding and symbolic. much like the rest of the attempts to repeal obama care. wolf? >> jim acosta, with that let's dig a little bit deeper in our strategy session right now. joining us two cnn contributors the former obama special adviser van jones and former bush speechwriter david frum. here is what it would take to repeal obama care. you understand this completely. maybe they could do it in the house where the republicans have a majority but in the senate you would need 60 votes. even if they got 60 votes, the president would veto that legislation. you need two-thirds overrides in both houses to override a presidential veto. you would need 67 votes in the senate. and that's not happening. >> that's not happening. the republicans are motivated i think by two concerns. the first is this is a very narled statute heading toward a lot of trouble that the financing mechanisms are inadequate. and what we're going to see is it is going to offer very per verse incentives to people to game the system. the subsidies aren't sufficient to cover the cost of health insura

the congresswoman's spokesman. how does she back up her claims? >> reporter: that's right. let me just answer that by reading you the statement and the statement is from her spokesman. he says obama care is forcing doctors into the employ of cost-cutting hospitals, gives government the authority to determine services that will and will not be covered, has a board independent of congress that can cut payments for care and allows the secretary of health and human services to force all health plans to eliminate any doctor that doesn't practice medicine the government's way. the history of government-run health care systems around the world is a history of denial, delay and sadly, even death. anderson, i notice that she responded not long after the democratic campaign committee which is in charge of getting rid of republicans, of defeating them in elections, put out a press release blasting her, saying she would rather be in washington as a right wing celebrity than solving problems back in minnesota for minnesota's middle class. remember, she got a scare back in november. her election, her congr

is not popular with everyone here. president obama walking a bit of a tight rope between supporting statehood or israel and the palestinians. >> make no mistake, those who adhere to the ideology of rejecting israel's right to exist, they might as well reject the earth beneath them or the sky above, because israel is not going anywhere. >>> just as israelis built a home state in their home lane, palestinians have a right to be free in their homeland. >>> today, he will meet to talk about the spillover. we will hear from both leaders later this morning. tracie potts, nbc news. >>> findings against two oakland county city council members could result in a misdemeanor and cost them their seat. the report claims council president, larry reads and descy brooks interfered with a $2 million construction track. courtney rubie says her audit proofs reed and brooks broke the law when they directed staff to push a $2 million demolition track at the oakland army base toward turner group construction. this report claims brook had violated the city charter 12 times, read one time and another by one of his s
generation, the sort of post civil rights generation is going to be the generation to do that. >> the joshua generation, josh. >> we could say josh. one of the things that was interesting. a light motif that's run throughout president obama's presidency has been the idea that at the heart the two sides really aren't separated by as much as we think we are. you saw him making that appeal, put yourself in the shoes of a young palestinian. that sort of thing. that was fairly effective for him in american politics. i saw his speech as trying to kind of spark that same kind of movement in the middle east. in hopes that he could overcome the sort of calcified political stalemate. >> and that's even happening. to the degree, the president doesn't have hope posters printed up and they're not distributed in the same way they were in 2008 or distributed at all. he still believes that his power lays with the people and so far as he's kept, jake, the campaign infrastructure alive, ofa continues. much to some people's chagrin, given the donor structure. but at the end of the day, that's where obama's pow
with the attack. ed henry is with the president. >>> ed, president obama is under a lot of pressure to take some military action in syria. >> that's right, including from some fellow democrats, who like carl levin, if not boots on the ground, at least a no-fly zone. senator levin and joining senator john mccain there could be surgical astrikes. the president acknowledged emotionally and frankly that it eats at him, the fact he is struggling with the decision about what to do when, as he put it so many women and children are being slate erred. he also said when it comes to u.s. military intervention, you're damned if you do, damned if you don't. >> you question may be suggestings why haven't we simply gone in militarily. and i think it's fair to say that the united states often finds itself in a situation where, if it goes going n militarily. it's cries size it. and if it doesn't do something militarily, people say what why aren't you doing something militarily? >> the president brokered a phone call between the israeli prime minister and the turkish prime minister to patch things up. turkey is a
. we recognize israel's right to defend itself, and that it is right for america to stand with you. >> benjamin netanyahu did everything he could to pretend that the romney position on iran was somehow tougher than the obama position on iran. the romney speech was pure pandering from start to finish, which means that it, of course, did not include the words "palestine" or "palestinian." so what happened today? when the man who benjamin netanyahu did not want to be president spoke to an audience of 2,000 carefully screened by netanyahu's government, composed largely of students? well, of course, first he was heckled. in hebrew. which makes him the first president in history to have to handle a hebrew heckler. then came the first standing ovation. >> i believe that you will shape our future, and given the ties between our countries -- i believe your future is bound to ours. [ heckling ] >> no, no. this is part of the lively debate that we talked about. this is good. i have to say, we actually arranged for that, because it made me feel at home. you know, i -- i wouldn't feel comfortab
